Conscious Step Socks Review
A Review of the Goods
We were drawn to Conscious Step even before our sustainable socks roundup because of their sustainability practices, but then learned their mission goes much further than cleaning up a production line. Based on the sock you pick, a portion of each sale goes to the cause associated with the sock. You can shop by cause or by style, and you’ll learn a little bit about the organization your dollars go to on the way! We love how transparent they are with the donation money:
Everyone loves a product with a purpose–especially when you get to pick that purpose! With about $1.2 million donated total at time of writing, they’re not making a huge difference to any of these causes, but the ability to choose between organizations has probably brought in more money as a whole than they would have otherwise. Smart move! Now, onto the actual socks.
We like ’em. They’re soft, made from Fair-Trade cotton. They come in all kinds of patterns, from subtle to outrageous to show off your style and the causes that are important to you. The socks come in two lengths, the standard mid calf and a barely there ankle sock. There’s a good amount of padding that makes even thinner soled shoes comfortable. Our only gripe is that because the socks aren’t mass made, there are quite a few loose threads left behind that has our toes catching while we put them on.
Conscious Step Socks Review: Product quality and ingredients sustainability
- certified vegan with no animal testing
- 1% for the planet
- Fair-Trade organic cotton
- non-gmo and insecticide free
- factory is certified by OKEO-TEX
Packaging/shipping materials and practices sustainability
- minimal, recyclable packaging
- there’s no information on the shipping sustainability, which seems to be a misstep. Including a shipping offset or offering an additional charge for offset shipping would make us even more on board with Conscious Step!
